A Scalable Vector Logo for ReactOS

Post by Jaix » Mon Mar 21, 2005 6:07 pm

I have made a Scalable Vector Logo for ReactOS, it's much like the ordinary logo with the difference it is in vector format, in this way it's possible to change size of it easy with high quality. I didn't have the bitmap for the inside of the atom, but I tried to create a similar, I didn't succeed perfectly, but anyway. I would like to have some feedback is it worth continue working with?

Creating a good SVG logo is on my todo list.

It's very easy to export this logo to SVG,it is made in Corel Draw and it has a lot of export options.

Which one are you talking about? The original was in Corel Photo-Paint, and my remastered version is made in Paint Shop Pro. Creating a proper SVG isn't that easy.

Is it just me who get a white screen, or has the image been removed?

I get a blank screen (white flash box), along with a tab to block the flash.

It's just a Flash file (swf) not a SVG file - not viewable with Firefox but it's viewable with IE.

You're right - that works. I have to say that I'm not a friend of SWF ... but it's still quite good. I like the idea of having "vector icons".

The "glow" is meant to be uneven around the Text, in a try to create some life into the thing, perhaps it's not a good idea.

Well, it might be an idea, but when you scale it up it gets really ugly in the current version.

Nice looking font choice. Definitely a move to add life to the visuals.

I still think people are too set on that double electron idea. Its really ugly. Its beyond ugly. And the symbol doesn't really relate to the word "REACT" other than its a particle. Quite frankly a lone particle doesn't react with itself.

One thing it really needs is COLOR. The primary colors would be a good start.

Add? This has been the font for the ReactOS logo for ages now.

Or you could think a little further and substitute "S" with "R" and get ReactOR, of course meaning nuclear reactor, which splits or fuses atoms, yay! Imagination is a difficult tool to wield, I presume?

The primary colors. Right. And where did we steal those from? No. Don't go there.
